About Paya Lebar Area

The Paya Lebar estate is located in the eastern region of Singapore. Known as Paya Lebar District in the 1820s to 1830s, its name originated from the Malay words paya and lebar, which mean “swamp” and “wide” respectively. The area is bounded by Tampines Expressway to the north, Tampines Avenue 10 to the east, former Tampines Dumping Ground and Defu Industrial Estate to the west and Kaki Bukit Industrial Estate to the south. 

In 1955, Singapore’s first international airport opened at Paya Lebar, which became the area’s major landmark. At the time, there were also housing estates, schools and factories in the area. With the opening of Changi International Airport, Paya Lebar Airport ceased its civil aviation operations in 1981 and was converted into a military airbase for the Republic of Singapore Airforce that same year. 

To the east of the Paya Lebar Airport, at what is now Tampines Avenue 10, were many sand quarries. Toward the late 1980s, the industry began to decline and the last quarry, located near the southern end of Paya Lebar Airport, cease operations in 1991. 

There are four sub-zones in Paya Lebar covering a total area of approximately 1,170 ha.8 Paya Lebar Street was officially named in 1958, and Paya Lebar Way in 1972. 

The Lifelong Learning Institute, located near Paya Lebar Square Mall and Paya Lebar MRT station, was officially opened in 2014. Paya Lebar Quarter, a mixed-use development by developer Lendlease and also located near Paya Lebar MRT station, is slated for completion in 2018.

So what is a Handyman?

handyman, also known as a handyperson or handyworker, is a person skilled at a wide range of repairs, typically around the home. These tasks include trade skills, repair work, maintenance work, are both interior and exterior, and are sometimes described as "side work", "odd jobs" or "fix-up tasks".

The services that a handyman can provide vary widely, and so do the rates for such services. The current market and the personal preferences of the handyman affect both of these greatly. Basically, a handyman is a jack-of-all-trades, an individual who is skilled at performing various tasks. Handymen usually take on jobs like minor home repairs and other construction tasks.

How big or small these tasks are, along with how experienced the handyman is will be what determines the rate that you will be paying. Some handymen will estimate how long a job will take and base their rate off that, or will offer a flat rate for the whole job. Paying a flat rate can be advantageous for you if your handyman gives you an honest estimate of how long the job takes.

The flat rate also protects you from complications that may arise that make the job take longer than expected. 

What is a Professional Handyman Company?

Most of the handyman prefer to do field work rather than being desk bound and managing the business. While many operate as an individual or a small team and registered as a sole proprietor, there aren’t many truly professional handymen company that are licensed and insured. It is easily to assume that handyman work seems simple, sometime a twist of fate can turn into disaster and can get out of control. Such as drilling through a conceal pipe or electrical wires. 

 the difference with a professional handyman company is that...

This incident can be prevented with the right use of equipment and know how. However, when disaster strike, a professional company will be able to handle such crisis whereby the individual cannot. Professional handyman company have many teams of technician with various core trade specialist such as carpenter, plumber and electrician.  Professional handyman company have more accountability, reliability and credential due to the licensed issued with stringent requirement by the relevant authorities such as HDB and BCA.

A professional handyman company is more organised, better equipt and better trained with constant updates on the current practices. In order to comply to the regulatory of the authority, the cost of a professional company operation gets higher compared to a sole proprietor. Not many wants to or are able to run a full pledge professional handyman company. Ultimately, engaging a Professional Handyman company will give you a peace of mind knowing that the job will be completed due to the solid support of the organisation and its capability to deliver as promised.
